About Me

My photo
Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, now living in Cheshire, England. I started writing poetry eight years ago, as a hobby. I have enjoyed that new venture very much. My preferences are for long and micro-form poetry styles. A first book of poetry ~ Reason Without Rhyme, was published in December 2013. A second book ~ Fifty Seven Pebbles, was published in September 2015...I am presently compiling the content for my third book. Thank you for visiting my Blog which is regularly updated.

Love Happy....

It snaps its strappy heels,
Clicks on nervous fingers.
Sings out of time in tunes,
Dances in pouring rain fall.
Smiles in lines of love words,
Slick, sickly romantic choruses
Tickled pinkish in hearty laughs,
Emotions ripple from top to tail.
Reflected in bright loving eyes,
Nothing else ever really matters.
Sharing crumbs of togetherness,
Precious snatches of night and day.
You and I are simply the only world,
Other love could never be so happy.

Guarding Memories....

Different dates may recall many old memories,
Some easily remembered or just long forgotten.
Affecting individual mindfulness or the wider world,
Images fade more quickly now than bleeding hearts.
Immediate impact gradually retreats into comfort.
The dust settles on the terror of the deadly actions,
Another zone transforms the battlefield for attention.
Technology invites interaction of the world’s audience,
Explosions and ripples of terror sanitize domestic viewers.
Beware of the garnering of despots and gathering clouds,
Words of hate quickly mushroom beyond horizons of hope.
